Great Tool & Price

"Northern had the best price. Fast shipping. The splitter works flawlessly. I have already split approximately 4 cords of wood. I had checked locally and found this splitter would have cost more. Don't be fooled. Some companies try to sell a similar looking one, but it is not the same size and cannot handle the same size logs."

"I had the same trouble with it tripping the breaker, needs to be plugged into 20 amp outlet without extension cord. Also would not split oak logs at all, even ones at 8 inches that already had splits in them.But did ok on pine and other soft woods. But its ok for what it is and its nice that you can roll it around just be aware of its limitations."

Great Log Splitter!

"I picked up the log splitter at the truck terminal, and it fit into the back of my Outback quite well, though it took two of us to lift it in. After getting it home, unloaded, and unpacked, the assembly took about 5 minutes, requiring no tools other than those that were supplied by the manufacturer. Plugging it in, I experimented with some 10-12 inch dia Cherry, which was a breeze, then I tried some Elm, which is extremely difficult to split using wedges. I was amazed by the ease with which I was able to split it into quality firewood. I am 75 years old, and find this splitter easy to use, and can split a weeks worth of firewood in just a few hours. My only regret is that I did not buy this item several years ago! Knotty wood is little or no problem. I am extremely pleased with this item, and would highly recommend it to anyone who uses fireplace wood."

"The only problem i have encountered is tripping breakers on cold starts. Use a very short heavy extension cord on a 20amp circuit. I also recommend putting the unit in a warm environment prior to winter use. Also upon assembly some poor machining on the wheel attachment. longer bolt threads were needed on one side."

GREAT SPLITTER

"A VERY POWERFUL SPLITTER CONSIDERING ITS ONLY 6 TONS OF FORCE.IT WILL HANDLE 10/12" LOGS ALL DAY,AND EVEN BIGGER LOGS IF YOU "SLICE " THEM VS. TRYING TO GO IN THE CENTER OF THE LOG. IT WILL BOG DOWN DOWN, IF YOU GO STRAIGHT IN ON A BIG LOG, BUT, IF YOU SLICE THE BIG LOGS, { OVER 14"} IT WILL MAKE IT WITH NO SWEAT!! the FOOT SWITCH IS REALLY THE MAIN REASON I PURCHASED THIS UNIT,ALLOWING BOTH HANDS TO BE FREE WHILE SPLITTING THE LOGS IS REALLY THE BEST,VS. OF HAVING TO USE 2 HANDS ON ALL THE OTHER ELECTRIC LOG SPLITTERS.... NOW, I did have a problem with the splitter when I first received, picked up at the Milwaukee WI. store, the foot switch was broken right out of the box, they have aggrieved to help me repair the switch at a local vendor VS. waiting for China, to send me another foot switch, I'm still looking for a replacement foot switch, but I do have one lined up through Granger......."
